are cooking up even more savings. senator tom coburn and he says it's time to cut out on grill sergeants on the pentagon channel. i didn't even know the pentagon had a channel. beef jerky from france is so the chopping blocks and how best for democracy. but leave you it to come up with $70 billion of cuts at the department of defense. senator coburn says if you scrap 1300 programs that duplicate each over you could save another $364 billion. it doesn't end there. our own lizzie apparently federal workers aren't doing federal work. we'll get to the bottom of that. we do know that the federal feet warmers are costing $156 million a year and then there is army ranger lucas who says like the billions he says could be saved by cutting overlapping costs by drone technology and electronic warfare. in total more than $479 billion that the government could start cutting right now, that is more than five times the cuts they are screaming about taking effect. first, tom on the unspent dough. congressman, i was surprised to see how much we're talking about? >> yeah, it's remarkable and the american
? >> jamie, as washington braces for billions in budget cuts, oklahoma senator tom coburn is calling on president obama to stop a 100 city campaign style tour, and angela mcglowan is a fox news political analyst, mark hanna, an adjunct professor at media of new schools and former aide, mark and angela, thank you for joining us, as you both know, senator tom coburn of oklahoma sent a letter to the white house, in it, if washington is truly cutting spending on missions many consider vital, how can we at the same time promise and promote more financial adistance, much less afford this mammoth, 100 city cross country tour, wrote coburn, and while he talked about that, while it's well intentioned, he's urging the president to cancel this tour. mark, what do you think about that? >> kelly, i think that senator coburn lives up to his representlation and his nickname as dr. no in the senate. if there's any senator taking issue with the president going city to city and town to town and informing americans and local governments about the programs that are available to them through their taxpay
. an unlikely foursome of senators, chuck schumer of new york, joe manchin of west virginia, tom coburn of oklahoma, and mark kirk of illinois are huddling together in hopes of finding a compromise on gun safety legislation. the associated press reports now, quote, the senators' talks have included discussions about ways to encourage states to make more mental health records available to the national system and the types of transactions that might be exempted from background checks, such as sales among relatives or to those who have permits to carry concealed weapons, said people who spoke anonymously because they were not authorized to describe the negotiations publicly. for that and other campaign politics we have our "hardball" strategist here tonight, democrat steve mcmahon and republican john feehery. john, let's talk about your party and the way it wants to position itself on the whole issue of what happened in newtown. i don't mean necessarily gun laws particularly but the issues of background checks, the issues of mental health records. is there a role for the republican party i
see that with tom coburn. he certainly believes that there is. and i do think that tom coburn is -- this could be a nixon goes to china moment for tom coburn and the nra and gun safety. >> where is john feehery? where were you? do you want something done on gun safety or not? >> i would like something done on gun safety. i would like something done -- i would like more aggressive effort to get guns away from violent criminals. i'd like to get guns out -- make sure they don't get in the hands of crazy people. that's where i am. and i think that we do need to have a more aggressive background check and i have been pretty public on that. >> how about the president? does he have to recognize reality here and go for what he can get? get a single, not a home run? even though he knees he's giving protection to the people on the center right and right? still be able to say they did something. there's a lot of strategy here. >> there's a lot of strategy. i used to work for senator kennedy and senator kennedy after he got past his 30s and 40s decided what you should do in legislating is
tom coburn. meanwhile, president obama won't stop his sequester scare tack i can roadshow. he is calling it a self-inflicted wound on the economy and john boehner has it right telling democrats to get off their ass and pass a pill and with all due respect to my friends at cpac, they're nuts not to invite new jersey chris christie to speak at their upcoming convention. governor christie is a mainstream conservative. i am larry kudlow. the kudlow report begins right now. >>> bernanke and john boehner all today chief washington correspondent john harwood joins us with the details. good evening, john. >> good evening. more today of this long running effort by president obama to goed republicans to compromise with him by agreeing to additional tax increases and spending cuts to replace the sequester. today he went to new port news virginia with a lot of defense installations and made the case that defense workers would be hurt by the sequester even if all the impacts aren't felt immediately. >> the impact of this policy won't be felt over night. it will weaken our recovery, our mil
have been a group of senators, republicans and democrats, tom coburn of oklahoma, supporters of kbree hencive background checks. what are policies that will make a difference in a quiet working group in the senate, trying to figure out what can get passed. i expect the president will say something tomorrow probably to stoke the flails and get it back in the public's conscience. and my sense is that there is hope to potentially get something done on gun control. probably not something as expansive as dinian feinstein's bill, but maybe universal background checks could move forward. >> an olive branch to congress, do you expect the president is going to be waving that? or z not a kumbaya moment? >> i think republicans have to reach out and back policies that they've backed in the past, but have tried to obstruct under president obama. >> margaret? >> maybe if it's lincoln's birthday, he did it for a reason. he'll take a page out of the playbook. we've all seen the movie, he'll hopefully take a page with how the 13th amendment got passed and bring us all together. >> we could all be deep
overblown, because, earlier, we were listening to republican senator tom coburn of oklahoma saying that the president is absolutely calling wolf on how the country will be impacted of these cuts. >> the president proposed the sequester. if you look at the numbers, the discretionary spending 40% in the last four years. this will only curtail this. >> but still, boris, this pew research poll shows that 49% of respondents that are republicans are going to be responsible if these cuts go into effect. only 31% said they'll blame the president. what do you make of these numbers? >> if these cuts go into effect, they're not widespread, then those numbers from the poll will change. because, the cuts are not going to be felt far and wide. like the president is trying to say they are. >> all right, we'll see what happens on friday. boris, republican strategy, thank you. >>> here's your "first look" at some of the other news going on around america right purr. >>> california, a major melee between college baseball teams. a bench-clearing brawl through sacramento and uc-riverside. >>> next to
that infringes on lawful gun owners eye right will be rejected. senator tom coburn. >> if they want to eliminate the benefits of actually trying to prevent the sales to people who are mentally and criminal, they need to create recordkeeping and this will kill this bill. if you want to improve it, you have to eliminate the recordkeeping and give people the right and responsibility to do the right thing and that's check on the next list to make sure you're not selling the gun in one of those two categories. >> nra vice president and ceo wayne lapierre took on the white house today. he said, it's been the obama's administration's plan all along to confiscate guns through universal background checks. >> the media called me crazy when i said that given a second term obama would come after our guns. okay. i was wrong. he did it before his second term even official le begun. he tried to do it. at the very heart of their anti-gun agenda is what they call universal background checks. don't you be fooled. there is nothing universal, nor responsible, about it. it's aimed at registering your guns. and, when
'll just do the rap sign. senator tom coburn, house majority whip kevin mccarthy and los angeles mayor antonio villaraigosa. also joining the table, chairman and ceo of comcast is here, brian roberts. pull it together. could you go downstairs and get a suit on, please? >>> coming up next -- no -- this is my sweater and nobody's taking it from me. >> it's going to walk away it's so dirty. >> nobody's going to make me change it now, tomorrow. this is like the eternal truth. this is my eternal truth. mike allen's coming up next. first here's bill karins with a check on the forecast. bill, what's going on? >> bill, you look nice. >> yeah, suit and tie today. good morning, everyone. every day, too. a little weak storm headed for new england. bring the umbrella with you this morning in new york city, philadelphia, down to the d.c., baltimore areas. starting off your morning commute dry. we've got rain and snow heading our way late today. currently that storm is located over tennessee bringing some rain and snow mixture right along the ohio river. even louisville could pick up a half inch of
, and hud were sent to promote federal aid in spending. oklahoma senator tom coburn is urging the administration to cap sell the tour when much is made about the impact of sequestration. in this letter sent thursday to the white house office of management and budget, he wrote it is somewhat surprising therefore for the white house to be headlining a 100 city government spending tour. >> we asked for how many people are going on the tour, what is it going to cost, what are the cities and why are we doing this? this is not for political means to exer bait the effects of the sequester. >> and coburn points out that beaverton have been adept at obtaining federal funds, receiving $2 million in grant and assistance since 2011. at the white house, the press secretary didn't have many details but said the tour isn't a big deal. >> you can find an vim thing and say that this -- an individual thing and say this could be cut. maybe it should be. whatever it is. it represents a drop in the bucket to $85 billion cut. >> everything is a drop in the bucket. we are $16.6 trillion in debt. tha
senator tom coburn, who are interested in fi finding common ground. on fiscal issues, senator rob portman of ohio says he's open to working with democrats but says his interaction with the administration is limited to secretary treasury nominee, jack lew. senator marco rubio, who's been working on immigration reform was clearly frustrated when white house legislation on the issue was leaked before congress had its own version ready. republicans have never done that, by the way. a white house spokeswoman told "politico," the entire obama administration is in regular contact with members of congress and their staffs an the president has been very clear he is happy to work with any who wants to build the middle class. >> what do you think? >> i think some of it is fair and some of it is just piling on and the president could too a lot of good-bye walking over to capitol hill and saying, okay, let's go. >> he doesn't do that. why doesn't he do that at this point? >> they reach out, i think, more than the narrative says. they've invited people, they've been insulted, they've been lied to and i
? >> on ash wednesday i learned once again that tom coburn, despite where you are in the ideological spectrum, deserves to be your favorite united states senator. >> i love tom coburn. >> i was sad calvin coolidge lost his 16-year-old son to a tennis blister. >> incredible story. >> why is phil here? >> he was looking in the mirror. i don't know. phil, kate upton's not here. we were just talking about her. >> we're just discussing the cover. >> kate upton's gone. she's not here. >> she's not here. >> kate upton's not here. you can go back to your office. it's way too early for "morning joe." please stick around. i don't even know who she is. why do guys act this way? here's the great chuck todd. >>> three for the price of one. president obama's state of the union feels more like three speeches at once. a short-term rallying cry, a long-term laundry list and an unusually emotional plea for action to change gun laws. >>> while senator marco rubio's watershed moment for the party came up dry in one way, his punchy primetime pitch did rev up the base. and it stirred up more 2016 talk. >>> also th
. but then we heard from senator tom coburn. take a listen to him. >> i don't think we're that close to a deal, and there absolutely will not be record keeping on legitimate, law abiding gun owners in this country, and if they want to eliminate the benefits of actually trying to prevent the sales to people who are mentally ill and to criminals, all they have to do is create a record keeping and that will kill this bill. >> mayor nutter, we thought tom coburn was going to be one of the relatively reasonable people, at least on background checks but there he is dangling some nra conspiracy theory about gun registry to sabotage the whole possibility of it passing. >> well, as you mentioned, you know, sometimes that is a very inside process. so i don't know who the senator has been talking to or what else is maybe going on behind the scenes. there's often the one play, the other play, and then there's another play going on that you can't even see. again, i'm a former legislator. i was a member of philadelphia city council. you don't actually know what a legislator is going to do until their name i
court judge to the tenth circuit, which is the circuit that includes oklahoma, senator tom coburn suggested to the white house a man he thought would be good for the job. tom coburn recommended him, the other senator from oklahoma approved with the choice, president obama agreed with the two republican senators from oklahoma and he recommended their chosen judge to be nominated to that court. and then, no. apparently that was really not okay with senate republicans. doing what they want and what they ask for is not okay. and it won't be stood for. the judge, who the republican senators asked for, was nominated in january 2012, and republicans in the senate filibusters him. they would not allow a vote on his nomination, they wouldn't allow him to be voted on for 263 days. but here is the really great part, when they
will be blamed. no question these thoughts are going to be painful and they are thoughtless. i know tom coburn and i agree on that. we need to do more spending cutting. we agree on that. why is it that we want come to the table and agree what cuts need to happen. that's what we should be doing. we shouldn't be passing the blame to the executive branch and saying this is obama's sequestor. the republicans supported this i supported it. we need to come together to make the right cuts. >> president obama is warning of dire consequences. >> our recommendation to the president is it is stop campaigning. last year we passed one of the most sweeping education reformulas in the country giving real choice to our kids putting right teachers in the classroom we have significant tax reform. my advice is stop the campaigning stop the cabinet secretary from scaring the american people roll up your sleeves and do the and use the revenues to lower tax rates so we don't have the highest corporate income tax rates. >> coming up at 7:00 a.m. donald trump gives his take on the sequestor. >> the time 12 after the
. >> michael: the republican senator tom coburn has identified some areas that could be cut. i mean listen to some of these . . . so, you know, it makes me think maybe somebody has a point here. >> i mean there is absolutely a point to be made. i have talked to a number of republicans who sat on the committees and they agree, of course there is some trimming to be done particularly since you're seeing the ends of the very costly conflicts for the united states. but there are cuts that will be damaging cut. >> michael: i'mture chuck hagel would like one of those pentagon-brewed beers. let's talk about hagel. he is calling for cuts to the defense budget. republicans have just skewed him with it. and how will he do with that? >> there is some concern in how chuck hagel will work with those on capitol hill. you have heard the chairman of the house armed services committee say he doesn't want chuck hagel to be confirmed. he think president obama needs to put up someone new. but it is likely he will be confirmed in a very hostile, tense environment where he is working in the
. oklahoma republican senator tom coburn is making it painfully clear that background checks could stop a bill in its tracks. >> there will not be record keeping on legitimate law-abiding gun owners in this country, and if they want to eliminate the benefits of trying to prevent the sales to people who are mentally ill, all they have to do is have record keeping, and that will kill this bill. >> according to "slate" magazine at least 2265 american souls have been lost to gun violence, that's about 87 new townes, since newtown. a seconded a was released featuring a military veteran tying mcconnell to the nra. >> i would be a pretty bad hunter if i needed an assault rifle to shoot that buck. i support the ban to ban assault weapons, because i know these guns. i know what they can do. the nra and the gun manufacturers have given a ton of money to senator mitch mcconnell. >> michael: on wednesday the senate judiciary committee will hold a hearing on banning assault weapons. now joining me on the phone is "ross call's" senate beat reporter niels lesniewski niels. welco
he's been working with. you would think mark kirk, tom coburn, these republicans that are really out there on this piece of legislation, which is just vital for gun safety would be getting calls but he doesn't do that. he's not your usual president, is he? >> he contestant doesn't do it. not done it for the last four years and not going to change. there are times being able to levitate above the earth would be a useful skill. we have gravity. that gravity won't change. the president won't suddenly become bill clinton the next four years. wasn't the last four years and won't be the next four years. either things will get done through more staff contact and cabinet secretaries and outreach and they won't get done and he won't change and become a different person. >> we're not asking him to call bill clinton. we have legislation in the balance. >> we've been talking about it this for four years. it's not going to change, not in his character. he doesn't like to do it, won't start doing it. >> after the president got elected again, made the joke my daughters don't really want to see me t

to stop more government spending. senator tom coburn has asked officials to cancel what he says is a planned 100-city tour designed to help local governments alie and get more federal money. so while congress is trying to find ways to cut spending, is this critical of administration? does it make sense to do both? we have the director of outreach for freedomworks and a fox news contributor and a former chief of staff to west virginia senator joe mansion. guy, welcome. >> good morning. >> jamie: it's confusing because on the one hand, we are talking about the cuts and on the other end, we are talk about this representatives going state to state. they have only done one so far to help them apply for and get more federal money. where is the money coming from? >> this is the obama dependency tour. we should be looking at ways to cut the spending. we know that obama wants to fundamentally transform america. the more americans depending on government, the better for him. we for spenning over $75 billion for food stamps, over $47 million americans depend on food stamps. $2 billion for
, it doesn't solve any of the big problems we have in the macro. >> mike, spending is double as tom coburn said over the past decade. government spending in these areas doubled. $500 million more now spent than we were spending several years ago. and we're told this is the end of the world if we cut 3 cents out of every dollar, a dollar that has been hyperinflated over the past decade in government spending. >> what is going to happen, what is going to be the mindset, sequester occurs march 1st and it continues for a period of weeks and months as they argue back and forth and nothing really much happens to daily life in america? >> unless we get those airport queues. >> you really think that would be the catalyst to get this turned around? >> no. but i think if you're trying to use something to demonstrate -- call me a cynic. >> by the way, we have to be really careful about that. because you know what? that's the sort of thing that a staffer suggests that's two cubed by half. then someone starts figuring out how they moved tsa employees around to make lines longer in new york, washington,
of these visits all around the country. and tom coburn, the republican senator from oklahoma, sent him a letter saying please don't do this. cancel this tour. the white house today, jay carney, the spokesman, says it's not a tour. in fact, they are going to be visiting many, many cities and states around the country trying to encourage those local governments to apply for more in federal grants. >> neil: i'm wondering where you think this goes. these are backing up like planes at la gashed i can't, so called -- laguardia. the next one is what happens the end of next month as we face another government shutdown. >> that's the continuing resolution fight. since the congress has not passed a budget since april of 2009, they fund the government by passing continuing resolutions which basically keep the government going on its current basis for another x number of months. they've got to do another one to fund the government until the end of this fiscal year on september 30th. and right now, there's -- it looks like there's going to be serious fights over spending and taxes. same issues we've seen in
. and i want to just read to you from senator tom coburn of obama. you're looking at this letter he sent. and now you're talking about defense cuts, but alighting questionable spending in urban areas security initiatives such as drones, underwater robots, snow, machines, security upgrades, spring training stadium, color printers, military-style bearcat vehicles used to protect pumpkin festivals. there is so much fat, so many easy cats. you even layer of some of your own. lori: i really do. some are, i think, kind of obvious in terms of let's do crew rotation where instead of taking our ships from the theater of operations, back to home ports in the united states to change crews. let's get them out there. that's why the cruise up there and meet them imports of theater operations. very significant savings involved in that. we have 79,000 troops still in europe. the cold war has been over with since 1991. do we really need that type of presence in europe when our european allies are spending less than 2% on they're defense? their economy. we are at over four and a half%. all the things that
of these bills. i think there is a difference between background checks and then what tom coburn is talking about. personal registration, there are stories in our paper, these deals that are coming together. but when coburn sort of threw cold water on it, it was not so much about background checks. it was this narrow issue of will there be a registry of personal issues. when you listen to the folks, it is a huge hurdle for some democrats and republicans to get over. then we could see something along the lines of background checks. i think assault weapons though, will be a bridge too far for some republicans and democrats. >> assault weapons looked very tough to me. but i want to talk about the background checks, this kind of registry that we talk about, one thing that happened, the damage control space, the nra and gun rights activists, efforts to constrict the amount of data, the groups, we can't get that trace data. that is a very, very big deal. and the fact -- i have to register to do, i think at this point i have to give them my driver's license to get sudafed, and to get firearms without ha
